Reviewer: dwj1024 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 7, 2011
Subject: Missing pages
The slightly smaller full text version is missing solutions for problems 100--116.

The book itself is a wonderful source of problems.
Reviewer: Erasmus1960 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 21, 2011
Subject: Great book
Pretty amusing examples for a mental workout, and I don't even like math. And yes, there are some "culturally insensitive" entries, but if we carefully censured all such instances from historical texts, current and future students would have little understanding of history.

Subject: Relic of an older age
The content is useful, but reading the culturally ignorant bits is grating. If I were going to use these for a class I would definitely rephrase any of those word problems to avoid the blatant racism. It is a very useful compilation of problems.
